Evgenii Vilkov aka zzeneg, after experimenting with stagger (Pica40, published his low-profile PicaChoc36 – a 36-key wired/wireless split keyboard.
Presenting my first low profile split keyboard. After my experiments with aggressive stagger I thought that it's not enough and I still have to move my hand to reach top pinky keys (Q/P) and it would be more comfortable to have these keys on the side instead. For the sake of the experiment I wanted to try choc V1 switches with choc spacing as well – zzeneg.
soldered (no hotswap)
rotary encoder (EC12E1220301)
TRRS or USB-C connection
very low profile: no bottom plate, no hotswap
thick top plate so switches are soldered almost flush with the PCB (inspired by the 3w6)
